He said that PTI workers and leaders are among the proclaimed offenders as 14 FIRs of May 9 incidents were registered.

The police have been arresting leaders from the Election Commission Office during the submission of nomination papers. ROs are also reportedly intimating the police about the presence of PTI leaders so they could be arrested.

Imran Kishwar further said that joint investigation of former chief justice Saqib Nisar’s house attack was also going on. Several teams are investigating the case. It is too early to say anything.
